AVTOMAT KALASHNIKOV introduced 1974. more modern version of the AK-47. russian/communist bloc equivalent to the AR-15/M-16. main idea was to use smaller rounds so more ammo could be carried. that idea was stolen from the US forces use of the .223 remington, or 5.56 x 45 round.

the idea behind it was is a .22 cak round moving extremely fast has the same energy as a 30 caliber round moving slower.

same size as an AK-47. unlike the ak-47 which shoots 30 caliber 7.62 x 39 rounds, the ak-74 shoots 22 caliber 5.45x39 rds
the russians replaced their AK-47 main battle rifles with AK-74 rifles because they could carry more smaller rounds for the same weight.

The EXTREMELY Small version of the AK-47. Cheap price, cheap shots, cheap everything. This gun blows in long range. But can instantly fuck someone up in CQ (Close Quarters) battle.
My AKS-74u is very small, yet packin a punch.
